Expert's answer

`a)`

3/50*47/49*46/48*3!

where 3/50 - probability of king,

47/49 - probability of another (second) card

And 46/49 – probability of a third one.

3! – permutations

b)

it is P(2kings)+P(2aces)- P(2kings &&2 aces)= 3/50*44/59*43/48*3!+ 3/50*44/49*43/48*3!-

- 3/50*3/49*44/48*3!=0.509
